Immersing Yourself in Irish Culture Through Different Courses

Study Ireland - Stories & Tips from International Students

If you’re thinking
about studying abroad, you’re probably wondering what kind of classes you can
take while here at UL. There are a wide range of classes to choose from
including Irish cultural classes! If you have room in your schedule I would
suggest taking some Irish cultural classes, as you get to learn more about the
country that you are spending the semester in! There are lots of Irish cultural
classes that you can take, such as: Introduction to Irish Traditional Music and

Tips to having the best Exchange / Study Abroad Experience

Study Ireland - Stories & Tips from International Students

I have just returned home to Canada after my one-semester exchange at UL. What can I say? It has been a BLAST! Although there isn’t anything I would change looking back, there are a few things that I wish I’d known about coming to Ireland, about the academics at UL, about cooking for myself, and about travelling in Europe. So I’d like to share these with you so that you are better prepared when coming to UL on your study abroad or exchange!

Before you come:

unnamedDownload WhatsApp – This is some advice especially for non-EU students like myself, who may not know that this mobile app is hugely popular in Europe. It quickly became one of the main ways of communication while abroad so it’s worth downloading and figuring out before you arrive.

Unlock your phone I made the mistake of forgetting to unlock my phone from my…
